A few days back I posted a comment about a speed trap and me having mounted a Laser Jammer on my bike. Got a few PM's asking questions about the set up so I thought I'd post some pic's.
Most of this is just cut and pasted from my responses to the PM's but now I have pictures!! If you have any questions, ask away. And yeah I'll save some smart ass the trouble... I DO have too much time on my hands
Just in case there are any "uniformed" riders reading this, keep in mind this is about my new Parking assist unit that I mounted on my baby... I have NOOOO idea if it actually jams Laser
I have poor parking skills, what can I say?!
After a bunch of research, this is what I found:
-There are several makers of Parking assist units in the marketplace. I went with the Blinder M27
-Blinder is the only company with patents on laser jamming, others license it from them
-They have been in biz for 10+ years
-Tests show them as doing what they say
I looked at the Cheetah M27 which is designed especially for bikes (uses Blinder brand parts insides) but found the price prohibitive at $800. The Blinder M27 is worth less than $400
That's a lot of tickets needed to make up the difference!
As far as I can tell, jammers are legal in BC. And with our ridiculous speed laws I sleep better having it. Washington state I5 is 113 Kph and they allow you to travel up to 124 Kph without getting ticketed (most of the time!). Compare that to 80 Kph on a Sunday night in a construction zone here on Hwy 1 WTF?!
My install was crazy simple. I put one on the front under my oil cooler, and one back above the license plate light. The brain is under my seat and the power switch on the dash. The system buzzes when it goes off and that has been a bit of a problem. In the city I can hear it but at 130+ kph its really hard to hear. I was originally planning on tying it in with a Bluetooth headset but ended up settling on adding bright flashing lights on the cluster. That is the only area where the Cheetah M27 has an advantage.
Anyhow, thought this might be of interest to others who have problems parking their bikes. Backing up can be a bitch!

Brain is off to the right
Don't forget your fuse!
